Does this song even need an introduction? (Did George Michael frost his tips for most of the '80s?) The soft-glow of heartbreak and despair, crooned by Andrew Ridgely and Michael of Wham!, the dynamic '80s pop duo. "Schmaltzy" doesn't begin to describe this song -- but it doesn't matter!

MP3: Wham!, "Last Christmas"

The Canadian band Ohbijou recorded a fine version of the song this year. Head to its website to grab the tune and hear other lovely recordings.

MP3: Ohbijou, "Last Christmas"

Half-serious, half-taking-the-piss out of the song, renegade Brit rockers Manic Street Preachers!

MP3: Manic Street Preachers, "Last Christmas"

The logical successor to Wham!'s sensitive-dude rock? (I kid. Mostly.) MP3: Jimmy Eat World, "Last Christmas"
